Introduction:

This Covid-19 Response Plan is designed to support the staff, Board of Management (BOM)
and DDLETB in putting measures in place that will prevent the spread of Covid-19 in
Luttrellstown Community College*.

The Covid-19 Response Plan details the policies and practices necessary for LCC to meet the
Government’s ‘Return to Work Safely Protocol’, the Department of Education and Skills
Roadmap for school re-opening and to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in the school
environment. The plan incorporates current advice about measures to reduce the spread of
Covid-19 in the community issued by the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET).
It is important that the resumption of school based teaching and learning and the reopening
of school facilities comply with the protocol to minimise the risk to students, staff and others.
As the advice issued by NPHET continues to evolve, this protocol and the measures
management and staff need to address may also change. The response plan will support the
sustainable reopening of our school where the overriding objective is to protect the health of
staff and pupils while promoting the educational and development needs of the children in
Luttrellstown CC.
In line with the Return to Work Safely Protocol, the key to a safe and continued return to
work, and re-opening of our schools requires strong communication and a shared
collaborative approach between the Board of Management, staff, pupils and parents.

2. Planning and Preparing for Return to School:

LCC, supported by our Board of Management and Patron DDLETB, aims to facilitate the
resumption of school based teaching and learning and the full return to the workplace of all
students and staff. This return to school must be managed safely and in strict adherence to
the advice and instructions of public health authorities and the Department of Education
and Skills (DES).
Details for the reopening of the school facility and the associated control measures that will
be in place are outlined in this document.
DES checklists regarding safety and hygiene measures in school buildings and enhanced
cleaning practices are being fully adhered to and completed in advance of re-opening.
Signage:
A range of Covid-19 safety signage will be displayed at each entrance to the college and
around the building, reminding all members of our school community of the key health
messages (hand washing, sneeze & cough etiquette, social distancing etc.).
The student journal also contains notes and visuals on handwashing and correct cough
etiquette. Posters supplied by the Health Protection and Surveillance Centre (HPSC) will be
visible in prominent areas such as offices, corridors, staffroom area, classrooms and toilets.
Procedure for Returning to Work (RTW)

All staff will participate in DDLETB online induction training before returning to work,
ensuring that they are up to date on best Covid-19 health advice and guidance.
In order to return to the workplace, staff must also complete a Return to Work (RTW) form,
which is available electronically or from Príomhoide.
A RTW form should only be completed at least 3 days prior to any proposed date of return to
the workplace.
On returning to work all staff will be made aware of and briefed on changed procedures and
practices, as a result of Covid-19 safety protocols. This will be in advance of student groups
commencing school.
On their return, students will also be inducted on these procedures and practices as part of a
sustained effort to minimize the risk of the virus entering and spreading in the school
community. Students absent on their first day must complete the induction session on
another date before they are permitted to resume classes.

4. Safety Statement and Risk Assessment:

COVID-19 represents a hazard in the context of health and safety in the school environment.
An updated school risk assessment to identify the control measures required to mitigate the
risk of COVID-19 in LCC is ongoing in advance of a full re-opening to staff and students.
This includes a review of emergency procedures involving, fire safety, first aid, accidents and
dangerous occurrences which considers any new risks that may arise due to the school’s
COVID-19 Response Plan. Any changes to the schools existing emergency procedures will be
documented and communicated to staff and students, as appropriate.
LCC’s existing risk assessment documents will be reviewed to consider any new risks that arise
due to the school’s COVID-19 Response Plan and the necessary changes will be documented.

5. General Advice for Preventing the Spread of the Virus:

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 it is important to know and recognise the
symptoms. They are:
      High temperature
      Cough
      Shortness of breath or breathing difficulties
      Loss of smell, of taste or distortion of taste

We ask every member of the LCC community to practice the essentials of:
Good hand Hygiene – use hand sanitiser on entering the building and each classroom and
wash hand regularly.
Avoid Touching Eyes, Nose & Mouth - Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to
your eyes, nose or mouth.
Cough/Sneeze Etiquette - This means covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your
bent elbow when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
Physical Distancing – to remain at least 2 metres apart wherever possible.
Face Coverings – required whenever it is not possible to maintain 2 metres physical distance
from others.

[Type here]
The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in a school is to minimise the risk of
introduction of the disease into the school setting in the first place. This can be achieved
through the following measures:

 Promote awareness of COVID-19 and its symptoms amongst staff, pupils, parents and
visitors.

 Advise staff and parents of pupils who have symptoms of COVID-19 or other acute infectious
diseases not to attend school, to phone their GP and follow the HSE guidance on self-isolation.

 Advise staff and parents of pupils who have been identified by the HSE as contact of a person
with COVID19 not to attend schools and to follow the HSE advice on restriction of movement.

 Ensure that staff and pupils know what to do if they develop symptoms at school.

 Everyone entering the school building should be required to perform hand hygiene with
hand sanitiser.

 Visitors to school during the day should be by prior arrangement and should be received at
a specific contact point

Staff, pupils and visitors should at all times adhere to the up to date advice and instructions
of the public health authorities in relation to protecting oneself and others against the risk
posed by the Covid-19 virus.

Updated advice from the HSE is available on its website – https://www2.hse.ie/coronavirus/

The Department of Education and Skills continues to ensure updated advice is circulated to
schools. LCC will arrange for this advice to be circulated to staff, pupils and visitors in a
timely manner. The Department has been working closely with the HSE and the Health
Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) to develop health advice which has been tailored to
the needs of schools in order to support schools in planning for reopening. The link to the
Interim Public Health recommendations for the reopening of schools can be found by
clicking here.

Managing the risk of spread of COVID-19:

Wash your hands frequently:

Regular hand washing with soap and water is effective for the removal of COVID-19.
The HSE advice have provided guidelines on handwashing at the following link:

https://www2.hse.ie/wellbeing/how-to-wash-your-hands.html

Hand Hygiene and Hand Sanitisers:

Hand hygiene can also be achieved by the use of a hand sanitisers (when hands are clean).
Hand sanitisers are deployed throughout the school to avoid disruption to teaching and
learning and to avoid congestion of staff and pupils waiting to use hand washing facilities.
They will be available at entry and exit points and in each classroom.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth:

Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer
the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth.
Do not share objects where possible, especially those that touch your mouth – for example,
bottles, cups, cutlery, etc. It is recommended to clean and disinfect common areas and
surfaces before use.

Physical distancing:

Physical distancing is recommended to reduce the spread of infection in the school
environment. Guidance on physical distancing requirements is informed by public health
advice for schools.

Practice respiratory hygiene:

Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means
covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your bent elbow when you cough or sneeze.
Then dispose of the used tissue immediately. By following good respiratory hygiene, you
protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and Covid-19.

Good hygiene practices and washing your hands properly and regularly can help stop the
spread of the virus. It is, therefore, crucial that all staff and students adhere to this advice
and adopt the practices listed above as strictly as possible.

[Type here]
People at very high risk (extremely vulnerable):

Current public health guidelines have identified groups who are defined as being at very high
risk. The HSE has set out these groups which are listed at the link below.

https://www2.hse.ie/conditions/coronavirus/people-at-higher-risk.html

Advice for extremely vulnerable/high risk members of the school community is also available
from the HSE.

Staff who are in this group should self-declare on the Return to Work form if they believe that
they are at very high risk. An online risk assessment questionnaire is available from the
Occupational Health Service. Details of applicable leave arrangements that may apply in such
cases has been provided by the Department of Education and Skills (Circular Letter
0049/2020) .

6. Control Measures:

A range of essential control measures have been implemented to reduce the risk of the spread
of Covid-19 virus and to protect the safety, health and welfare of staff, pupils,
parents/guardians and visitors as far as possible within the school. These control measures
are outlined in this document. The control measures shall continue to be reviewed and
updated as required on an ongoing basis. It is critical that staff, pupils, parents/guardians and
visitors are aware of, and adhere to, the control measures outlined and that they fully
cooperate with all health and safety requirements. Staff, in particular, should note that they
have a legal obligation under Section 13 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005
to comply with health and safety requirements and to take reasonable care for the health and
safety of themselves, their colleagues and other parties within the workplace.

The following control measures have been put in place:
   i.         Return to Work Form:

Staff will be required to complete a RTW form at least 3 days prior to any return to the school
facility (see section 2 above). The purpose of the RTW form is to get confirmation from staff
that, to the best of his/her knowledge, he/she has no symptoms of Covid-19 and is not self-
isolating or cocooning or awaiting the results of a Covid-19 test.

   ii.        Induction Training:

[Type here]
All staff will undertake and complete Covid-19 Induction Training prior to returning to the
school building. The aim of such training is to ensure that staff have full knowledge and
understanding of the following:
    Latest up to-date advice and guidance on public health

     Covid-19 symptoms

    What to do if a staff member or pupil develops symptoms of Covid-19 at school.

    Outline of the Covid-19 response plan.

Staff will be kept fully informed of the control measures in place in the school and their duties
and responsibilities in preventing the spread of Covid-19 and with any changes to the control
measures or guidance available from the public health authorities.
If a staff member is unsure about any aspect of the Covid-19 Response Plan, the associated
control measures, or his/her duties, he/she should immediately seek guidance from the
Principal.
Note: Induction Training for reopening schools in the new school year has been developed by
the Department in consultation with stakeholders and made available to all schools and staff.

   iii.       Hygiene and Respiratory Etiquette:

It is crucial that all staff, pupils, parents/guardians, contractors and visitors are familiar with,
and adopt, good hand and respiratory hygiene practices. Guidance documentation and
Information posters will be available at various locations within the school facility.
Information posters will be prominently displayed at appropriate locations within the school
facility including offices, corridors, staffroom area, classrooms and toilet areas. Such are
intended to inform but also remind everyone about the importance of hygiene in preventing
the spread of Covid-19 virus and protecting health and safety.
Handwashing facilities and/or hand sanitisers are available at multiple locations within the
school facility and sanitiser spray will be available in each classroom.

   iv.        Use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

[Type here]
 Staff and students are required to wear face coverings, similar to those worn in shops
     or on public transport, when a physical distance of 2 metres cannot be maintained –
     i.e. corridors, classrooms and other common areas. Best hygiene practice will be
     outlined in this regard to students on induction and signage will be placed as
     reminders throughout the college.

    PPE will also need to be used due to the nature of certain work activities or work areas.
     Such include roles where:

              o  Attending to a student who is unwell. Where a suspected case of Covid-19 is
                identified while the school is in operation appropriate PPE will be required for
                first aid.
              o Where staff provide healthcare to children with medical needs in the school
                environment they should apply standard precautions as per usual practice.
              o The use of a face covering will conceal facial expression and can make
                communication difficult and as such may not be practical at times in a school
                setting. Face masks are the preferred form of face covering except in cases of
                an underlying medical condition. The wearing of a visor may be considered by
                teachers and can be worn where there is a medical concern or where physical
                distancing cannot be maintained.

    Wearing of Gloves: The use of disposable gloves in the school setting by pupils or staff
     is not appropriate expect where necessary in a practical class. It does not protect the
     wearer and may expose others to risk from contaminated gloves. Routine use of
     disposable gloves is not a substitute for hand hygiene.
    Cleaning Arrangements for more regular and thorough cleaning of areas and surfaces
     within the school are in place. Regular and thorough cleaning of communal areas and
     frequently touched surfaces shall be conducted, in particular, toilets, lifts, door
     handles and kitchens. Cleaning will be performed regularly and whenever facilities or
     surfaces are visibly dirty.
    All staff and students will have access to cleaning products and will be required to
     maintain cleanliness of their own work area. Staff should thoroughly clean and
     disinfect their work area before and after use each day.
    Shower facilities shall not be available for use due to the increased risk associated with
     communal shower facilities and areas. This shall be reviewed in line with government
     guidance. Staff must use and clean their own equipment and utensils (cup, cutlery,
     plate etc.).

v. Access to the school building /contact log:

[Type here]
Access to the school facility will be in line with agreed school procedures. Arrangement for
necessary visitors such as contractors and parents/guardians is restricted to essential
purposes and limited to those who have obtained prior approval.
Protocols with regards access to office and all staff will be by email and appointment only. No
unauthorised footfall will be permitted. All welfare forms can be posted to the office or
scanned to LCC and they will be returned as soon as possible.
A visitor contact log of those entering the school facilities will be maintained - Appendix 3.
First Aid/emergency procedure: The standard First Aid/Emergency procedure shall continue
to apply in LCC.

   vi.        Lunch and Break Arrangements:

There will be no use of canteen, vending machines or lockers for the month of September.
When best practice is established with regards to social distancing, the possibility of
introducing these facilities will be reviewed. Small break will be in base rooms under teacher
supervision in Period 3. No water fountains will be in operation; students should bring in their
own snacks and drinking water
   vii.       Letter issued to Parents/Guardians

LCC has issued a letter to all parents/guardians requesting the following:
    that children be kept at home if they or a family member are in any way Covid-19
     symptomatic.
    not to congregate at the school premises and to stay two metres apart.
    Where possible, parents to encourage students to walk or cycle to school.
    To ensure that parent/contact details are up to date on the school system, along with
     a secondary contact for each student.
    to remind children to keep their uniform clean for daily use.
   viii.      Limiting movement in the School Building:

LCC’s has implemented a new one-way system which must be observed at all times.
Entrances and exits for different year groups will be explained on induction and must be
observed. All classes have been assigned base rooms and different year groups have been
placed in separate parts of the building where possible.
Each Year has been designated a specific bathroom and yard area outdoors. (See appendix).
Late attendees must present at the main door and may not interrupt a class; they will wait
until the next class begins in the GP area. Once seated in class, students are not permitted to
circulate.

LCC Code of Positive Behaviour:

[Type here]
The new procedures in this response plan are protected by LCC’s Student Code of Positive
behaviour and associated policies.
It is essential that every effort is made to adhere to the control measures put in place in order
to respect the health and safety of all members of the school community.
Cases of clear and/or consistent disregard for the new protocols, this will be viewed as a
serious breach of LCC’s Code of Behaviour and relevant sanctions will apply in line with
sections:
8.3 Roles and Responsibilities of Students to

       Follow Health and Safety procedures at all times.
       Act in a safe manner which considers the safety of others.

and 7.3 Consistent breaches of college rules and regulations

. • The student’s continued presence in the school at this time constitutes a threat to safety.

Each student is responsible for his/her own behaviour and is expected to engage in
responsible and positive behaviour by complying with the LCC Code and new safety protocols.
The Board of Management August 26th adopted an additional disciplinary measure for breach
of Covid Protocols. After one warning, on a second breach a student will be required to learn
remotely the next day or asap if they breach Covid protocols.

Teaching and Learning:

Providing and maintaining high standards of teaching and learning remains the core business
of Luttrellstown Community and College.
LCC’s programme of Technology Enhanced Learning using one to one iPad devices, LCC Gmail
and G-Suite domain facilitates the continued provision of interactive lessons and the sharing
of materials, student work and teacher feedback in a digital format.
In the absence of student lockers to store textbooks, teachers will maximise the use of digital
resources for school based lessons, and may set work from textbooks to be completed at
home.
LCC’s Remote Learning Guidelines and Protocols will support blended learning when required.

[Type here]
7. Dealing with a suspected case of Covid-19:

Staff or pupils should not attend school if displaying any symptoms of Covid-19. The following
outlines how LCC will deal with a suspected case that may arise during the course of work.
The designated isolation area identified within the school building is the
    Former meditation suite at the end of Guidance corridor (Upstairs);
In the case that a staff member/student displays symptoms of Covid-19 while at
work/attending school in LCC, the following procedures will be implemented:
 The person should be accompanied to the designated isolation area via the isolation route
(follow admin corridor and rear staircase for access and leave by emergency exit door; From
upstairs; use middle staircase and follow admin corridor), with the responder keeping at least
2 metres away from the symptomatic person and also making sure that others maintain a
distance of at least 2 metres at all times
 Face coverings should be worn by all – first aid responder and the symptomatic person -
whilst moving to and attending the isolation area and when exiting the premises
 In the case of a student, the parents/guardians will be contacted immediately. It will need
to be assessed whether the individual who is displaying symptoms can immediately be
directed to go home (in case of staff)/be brought home by parents (students) before calling
their GP and continuing self-isolation at home.
 The person presenting with symptoms should remain in isolation if they cannot immediately
go home. The individual should avoid touching people, surfaces and objects. Advice should
be given to the person presenting with symptoms to cover their mouth and nose with a
disposable tissue when they cough or sneeze and put the tissue in a waste bag provided.
 If the person is well enough to go home/ transported home by a family member as soon as
possible – they should be advised to inform their general practitioner by phone of their
symptoms. Public transport of any kind should not be used
 In the case where the symptomatic person is too unwell to go home or further advice is
required, emergency services should be contacted (999 or 112) to inform them that the sick
person is a Covid-19 suspect.
 A Digital Incident Report Form should be filled following the school response - which will
form part of determining follow-up actions and recovery.
 Appropriate cleaning of the isolation area and work areas involved will take place following
the incident.
The HSE will inform any staff/parents who have come into close contact with a diagnosed case
via the contact tracing process. The HSE will contact all relevant persons where a diagnosis of
COVID-19 is made. The instructions of the HSE should be followed and staff confidentiality is
essential at all times.
